"It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And I'm all outta gum."
If I own it, why do I have to do anything special to it to run any app I choose? That is my point. To have restrictions that I have to break to get around seems to be allowing Apple to have a say about a device that I own.
"Of course, many are quick to remind that it is Apple's store and they are free to do whatever they want with it."
By the same token isn't it my iPhone that I am free to do what I want with it? Sure that means I can jailbreak it, but why should I be forced to just to use an app that Apple doesn't want to sell on their store?
